Southwest Kansas Wind Energy Education Workshop (Dodge City)

Are you curious about teaching wind energy in your classroom or how to prepare for the KidWind Challenge? This year, we are hosting six teacher-focused wind energy education workshops throughout Kansas. Each teacher who attends and completes the training will receive a modified Vernier KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Kit (~$124 value). You can see a photo of these supplies at the bottom of this page.
